THE WEATHER AND THE CROPS I [FBOI MONDAY'S MARK-LANE EXPRESS."] Whatever may have been the cause, holders of English wheats have been enabled to obtain Is to 2s per quarter advance on rates current before the holidays from needy buyers, and in some country exchanges fine English wheats were held at 3s against buyers on Saturday. Country flour has improved 6d to Is during the week. In some provincial exenanges barleys of fair quality have gained Is on recent rates, but oats have met with a quiet trade. Other articles remain without quotable alteration. Foreign wheats show no material improvement in consumptive demand, although the quotations since Monday were raised from Is to 2s against buyers. The open weather has brought up thelate sown wheats in very satisfactory form, and the soil is now in excellent condition for sowing Titlavera and other early spring and late winter varieties. All cultivation is forward for the time of year, and the sowing of peas is be^innin^ to be pre- pared for farms. Deliveries h-ive fallen off very considerably during the last few weeks. This may be due to the foggy weather havino- afforded a deterrent influence, and to the fact that the exigencies in connection with rent audits not having been met so far as may have been practicable.
